"'s ezra klein and yahoo! finance senior columnist mike santoli. mike, the post-crisis lows for the markets are nearly four years old. in 2013 what's your outlook for the market stability and the broader economy? >> i think the market is finally realizing that it's kind of emerged from this long-term kind of uncertainty trade out there. the big picture questions are whether the central banks can kind of stabilize the system, whether, for example, china last year was going to go into a recession, whether europe can kind of keep it together through recession. i think we've gotten past -- through most of those things and i think it's slow and steady. the u.s. economic growth picture is probably the best bet, but i think it's going to feel better to the average person because of the component to that growth, meaning housing, autos, and finally jobs. looking like they're going into a decent upspring. i think it's slow and steady but feeling better than the past couple of years. >> it definitely does feel better. ezra, uncertainty seems to have been the theme this year. businesses don't like it.
